in this parking area. neighbors pointed the area out to us and we found crime scene tape here as well. here's what police say happened next. >> they were trying to approach him to make contact with him. shots -- a shot was fired and the officer felt that he was in danger at that point and responded to that shot firing several rounds. >> reporter: but what exactly happened is not known for sure. police say the man, 28-year-old owe livier cohen -- olivier cohen was spotted with a rifle. it's unclear if he shot at the officers or that single shot heard was that of cohen shooting himself. still the officer felt the need to protect himself. >> the gunshot was heard by the officers that were responding and at this point everything of that nature is still under investigation by our criminal investigation division and some of those determinations are yet to be made. >> reporter: cohen was pronounced dead at the scene. the officer was not hit. the scene outside the cohen home in germantown friends of the family told us off camera that they have a hard time believing cohen would have attempted to harm a pol
. a man by the name of kashmiri. security teams are telling us that the threat is on going and american tourists oversees are potential targets. the ideal would be to hit several targets to multiply the impact. >> the potential for three countries, france, germany and britain to be attacked simultaneously is actually a global-shock attack, and it comes out of the maturity in the style of attacks that pakistan has very sadly been having for a longtime, and also that the colders are seeing in afghanistan. megyn: steve centanni is tracking all of this and the threat assessment live for us at the pentagon. steve, what are you learning? >> reporter: u.s. officials are telling us, that they had a specific -- credible information but not specific information about a terror attack that would have been focused in europe in several countries in europe. it's unclear exactly what was being planned. the plot apparently has been disrupted for the most part but the danger could continue. one scenario had terrorists swarming over tourist hotels, ala mumbai, that's exactly what happened in mumbai, india
is going to break it down for us. what do these plans do with all that money? >> first off, the $50 billion infrastructure program would rebuild or build 150,000 miles of road, 4000 miles of railroad track, 115 miles of airport runways. essentially, that would be paid for with taxes on the oil and gas industries. it's a six-year program, no new jobs created immediately, and much of the criticism is that it is essentially a payoff to the unions. there is a second plan to be unveiled tomorrow, the "wall street journal" saying that this is a $200 billion plan, $200 billion worth of tax breaks for businesses. it would speed up the writeoff, for example, bill, you spend $10,000 on a computer right now, and immediately, that $10,000 comes off your business income, taxable business income. overall, no new jobs created immediately, some say that this is the president scrambling because his polls on the economy are looking very, very bad, and both of those plans would require a vote in congress, which is not likely. bill: wow, so here we are, post labor day. i can't think of a bigger issue in the co
security. u.s. troops pulled out last summer. iraqi forces had moved into the lead with considerable skill and commitment to their fellow citizens. even as they continue to suffer terrorist attacks, security infancies have been near the lowest on record since the war began. iraqi forces had taken the fight to al qaeda. this year sell iraq called incredible elections i drew a strong turnout. a caretaker administration is in place. tonight i encourage the leaders to move forward with a sense of urgency in coming to form a government that is just representative and accountable to the iraqi people. there should be no doubt that the people will have a strong partner in the united states. going forward, and the transitional force of u.s. troops will remain in iraq with a different mission. they will support iraqi troops in targeted counter-terrorism missions and protecting our civilians. a consistent with our agreement with the government come on u.s. troops will leave by the end of next year as our military draws down, are dedicated civilians are moving into the lead to support iraq as a result
political settlement. what makes us think that we can make some progress now? that is really only very recently that all the necessary elements of the campaign have come together. despite the fact that there have been western forces there since 2001, it is only rarely now that the necessary number of forces are deployed in afghanistan, as general petraeus has recently been making clear. one of our announcements had been a 40% increase in the development going to afghanistan. we have an economic protests that that is bought out by the afghans themselves. all these things have come together in recent times. the single most difficult problem we have faced in international affairs, but i think now we have the finest military minds, a good military plan, the necessary quantities of development and the experience of provincial reconstruction, and motivated key ministers in afghanistan, to have the best chance for success that it is possible to put together. i believe is right to maintain an effort to succeed, because i think the consequences of abandoning that effort now would be extremely s

and it cost us too much of our money, so often, too much borrowed money. but where to cut it and what are the irrelevant programs? that gets to be a lot more difficult. all i can think of is little things that we expect the federal government is doing something about, and then we are shocked when we find out that they are not doing something about it. we expected, for example, in the gulf of mexico, that the government had amazing undersea capacity to shot that well down itself. it does not -- to shut the well down itself. does not. the snake and in the houston rivers and other asian imports, we expect the government to do something about it. likewise, we expect to do something about the cavendish banana that we have eaten all our allies. it is actually a clone. -- all our lives here it is actually a clone. it happened months ago with another banana which is long away. but we think we always have bananas -- the bees are stressed and dying, we hope that the government is studying it. bats are dying, and we hope the government is studying it. these are not trivial. any large disappearan
